From This Pain Something Good Will Grow

Some paintings refuse to be defined according to perfectionistic notions of even lines and shapes, and I have to let them be as rough as they are. So called imperfections are a part of the whole, when the main goal is to express raw emotions and mental struggles. This painting is an example of that struggle, of striving for clarity in the midst of sorrow and pavimeoinvimeow. It is a reminder to see the other side of the pain: the beautiful growth happening deep within, through the struggles of life.
